Free Music Classes for Babies and Toddlers!

Looking for a fun new activity for you and your baby, toddler, or preschooler?  Want to meet other parents and families? How about making music a part of your child’s life by joining us for a FREE demo class! Each week in Music Together Kindred Voices Mixed Age classes, little ones and the adults who love them come together for 45 minutes of fun-filled family time while building a sense of community and connection with others.

You’ll have so much fun singing, dancing, playing, and laughing that you may not realize how much learning is taking place. We can help your child grow into a confident music-maker while also tapping into all the developmental benefits that music brings. And as you discover fun ways to play with music and rhythms all week long, you’ll be supporting your child’s music- learning and overall development. 

Classes are offered throughout the year, with a new 25 song collection each season. This winter, we will be exploring the Sticks Collection with favorites such as Trot to Grandma’s House and Ridin’ in the Car!

Registration is required so please contact us via our website or email us at [email protected] to reserve your spot today!
